As she deals with the emotional fallout from her divorce, Kim Kardashian is taking comfort from her ex-boyfriend, a tabloid report claims. NFL star Reggie Bush is giving the socialite emotional support, according to Life&Style.

“Reggie reached out to Kim via text shortly after she announced she was filing for divorce to make sure she was OK,” an insider confided. “They’ve stayed in touch ever since, texting and talking. Kim was Reggie’s first love. He knows she’s hurting right now, but when the time is right, he’ll swoop in and take care of her.”

The football player had a long-term romance with Kim, but resisted appearing on any of her reality shows — probably wisely, considering the rapid relationship demise “Kourtney and Kim Take New York” viewers are witnessing between Kim and hubby Kris Humphries.

Now, while the divorce drama drags on, Reggie has allegedly been there for his former girlfriend — calling, texting and via Skype.  

“He’s concerned about her; he’s making sure she’s holding it together,” said the source. “Reggie always knew that it wasn’t going to work [between Kim and Kris], so he’s been waiting and watching.”

Well, we all always knew it wasn’t going to work between them. The question is, could it work between Kim and Reggie if they gave it a second chance?

Lindsay: Secret Love?

Lindsay Lohan’s secret diary may reveal that she was in love with Heath Ledger before his death.

Star — never the most reliable source, mind you — claims to have obtained a 2008 journal the self-reflecting starlet penned, declaring her love for the actor after his untimely death. What’s not clear is whether they were actually a couple or she just had a schoolgirl crush.

“Today Heath died. I’m in love with him,” LiLo allegedly proclaimed. “He was the love of my life.”

 “When a person dies the world stops,” the “Mean Girls” actress is purported to have philosophized. “I’m numb. There’s an emptiness. And a desire to feel loved. A need to be held in the arms of someone who understands. But what do you do when the one who understands is gone?”

If this diary is actually hers, it’s not the only recent Lindsay leak: A snapshot of her upcoming Playboy cover also made its way onto the Internet. But hey, this is the first time her name’s been in the news for a while, so that’s good, right?

Wilde for Jason

There’s something about Jason Sudeikis. The funnyman has been linked to high-profile hotties like January Jones and (less conclusively) Jennifer Aniston in the past. Now, Us claims he’s dating sought-after (in more ways than one) actress Olivia Wilde.

A guest at the Dec. 4 “Saturday Night Live” after-party told the tabloid that “they walked in holding hands.”

“She’s come to the [‘SNL’] studio at Rockefeller Center, and they’ve gone out to dinner after rehearsals,” another source notes.

Granted, there’s a certain cuteness about Jason, but these ladies seem out of his league, lookswise. Wait … could it be that all those people who say they’re attracted to a sense of humor over physical characteristics are actually telling the truth? Weird.
